Spring Dippemess 2020 will be cancelled

Spring Dippemess 2020 will be cancelled

It was already speculated, but now it's official: The popular Spring Dippemess - the flagship of Frankfurt's festivals and the kick-off of the Volksfest season- will also not take place due to the current Corona epidemic. This was announced today by Tourismuss+Congress GmbH Frankfurt.

The rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2 as well as the current requirements of the health authorities to no longer prohibit only large events, prompted the organizers to cancel the Volksfest originally planned for the period from 02. to 26 April, thus ensuring that the health of up to 1.2 million visitors would not be unnecessarily endangered.

The Dippemess on the festival site on Ratsweg is not only considered the top folk festival in the Rhine-Main region, but is also celebrating its 675th birthday this year. This should be celebrated with a big ceremony. The fact that this traditional festival has to be cancelled in its anniversary year is painful for the organisers, the numerous showmen and women as well as the people of Frankfurt, but in view of the current development and the increasing number of Corona infections it is absolutely understandable. All that remains is for us to look forward to the autumn Dippemess, when it can then take place as planned - and which we will all hopefully be able to attend safe and sound.
